Abigail Breslin
Abigail Breslin who starred in “My Sister’s Keeper” alongside Cameron Diaz in 2009 is now starring in a PSA urging fans to join the fight against leukemia by registering to become a bone marrow donor with DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donor center. The film, which is about a young girl who tries to earn medical emancipation from her mother so she doesn’t have to donate her kidney to her older sister, ignited a real life friendship between Breslin and a girl named Nicole. “My friend Nicole had a bone marrow transplant and she wouldn’t be alive otherwise,” said Abigail. “Let’s save mo...

Cameron Diaz Took 'Knight And Day' Role To Have 'Some Fun'

Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz jumped at the chance to appear alongside Tom Cruise in Knight And Day - because she wanted to have "some fun" following the death of her father two years ago.

The Charlie's Angels star was left devastated when her dad Emilio died in 2008 while she was filming My Sister's Keeper, about a girl who suffers from leukemia.

Diaz was relieved when she was offered her latest film role with her Vanilla Sky co-star, because she knew the action adventure would help her overcome her sadness.

She says, "I'd spent a year in grief with my family and I just wanted some fun and to go on a...

Check Out 'Bruno' on Blu-Ray, Hi-Def & DVD Nov. 17

November 17th, 2009 8:00am EST
Bruno
Sacha Baron Cohen (the creator and star of Borat) returns to the big screen in the hilarious adventures of Austria’s favorite fashionista, Brüno.

In this gleefully anarchic mockumentary, the flamboyant television host loses his homeland talk show, “Funkyzeit,” and does what any self-respecting wannabe would do—he moves to Hollywood to pursue worldwide super-stardom. From worlds of fashion and entertainment to the military, Brüno puts his worst foot forward as Baron Cohen fearlessly tramples the boundaries of good taste in ways that confound celebrities and just plain folks alike.

'My Sister's Keeper' On DVD, Blu-Ray, On Demand & Digital Download Nov. 17

My Sister
What keeps a family together? Nick Cassavetes, the director of The Notebook and John Q, again demonstrates his sure hand with tales of deep human emotion in the inspiring film My Sister's Keeper about a loving family challenged - and united - by a child's illness.

Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, Alec Baldwin and others in an exceptional cast bring sensitivity to the story of 11-year-old Anna Fitzgerald, conceived to be a donor for her leukemia-stricken sister, and who finally demands the right to control her own body.

This act of free will may tear the Fitzgeralds apart. Or it may be...

Everything Geeky: Onscreen Inaccuracy - Necessary or Needless?

The Tudors
I was recently flipping through channels on a quiet Sunday evening when the new show "Merlin" caught my eye. It was originally a British TV drama that did fairly well and premiered in the US on June 21. So far it's viewership isn't too bad and they even got a second season, but seriously? It's terrible. It's terrible in that awesome way where the plots are silly and the acting is somewhat ridiculous, but yet you can't help but keep watching. It has a certain badly budgeted charm that is a reminder of "Hercules: The Legendary Journey" and "Xena: Warrior Princess." Only it's lighter, fluffier...

Reports have emerged that Cameron Diaz is battling the skin condition psoriasis on her arm, but we think she looks pretty good in photos from last night's premiere of "My Sister's Keeper" in New York City. However, the elbow in question isn't visible in these photos and was conspicuously hidden in all shots. What do you think of Cameron? See more photos after the jump...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

June 22nd, 2009 10:10am EDT
Transformers 2
I got the chance to see "Moon," this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. Sam Rockwell's interaction between the cloned versions of himself was brilliant, and Kevin Spacey was entertaining as the lunar station's computer.

The movie's effects were rock solid and the music was great. My only real complaints were its slow pace, and that I felt the reasons why he was being cloned weren't adequately explained.

This week we have the arrival of another highly anticipated summer blockbuster: "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." I will be seeing it tonight, and I'm anxious to see how ...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

Sister Spotlight: Elle And Dakota Fanning

Fanning Sisters
The Fanning family is lucky. They have two pretty young girls, both are established or establishing themselves as respected actresses in an age when tween sexpots sell, and have managed to stay out of the unflattering light of Hollywood - thus far. Two talented daughters, bound to make large amounts of money due to their talent, must deal with the downfalls of normal child stardom. For those who are only familiar with Dakota Fanning, she has a younger sister, Elle, who is fast becoming just as well known as her sister. Let's investigate this perfect storm of child actors done right, and wha...

Novel Roots: Best & Worst Films Based Off Of Books

May 20th, 2008 11:17am EDT
The Bourne Ultimatum
Many filmmakers are taking on the challenge of turning classic novels into feature films. It's a challenge because many people have fallen in love with the books and don't want directors messing with them. There are many books that were translated poorly on the big screen, but there are films that are just as good as the book, if not better.

In no particular order, here is a look at some of the best and worst films that are based off books:
